From DestroyerHistory.org: "The Rudderow class TEV (Turbo Electric 5-inch) type first appeared in 1944. The design matched two 5-inch/38 cal. guns with a Buckley-class (TE) hull and 12,000 shp powerplant. It also introduced a low, enclosed bridge, which it shared with the John C. Butler class (WGT).

"Seventy-two Rudderows were built; 69 were completed by the time of the surrender of Japan on 2 September 1945, two more followed later in September and one in November."

From Wikipedia:  "USS Rudderow (DE-224) was a United States Navy destroyer escort named after Thomas Wright RudderowLead ship of her class, she was laid down on 15 July 1943 at the Philadelphia Navy Yard, launched on 14 October 1943 and commissioned on 15 May 1944, Lieutenant-Commander Malcolm W. Greenough, USNR, commanding.

"The John C. Butler class were destroyer escorts that originated during World War II. The lead ship was USS John C. Butler, commissioned on 31 March 1944. The class was also known as the WGT type from their Westinghouse Geared Turbine drive.[1] Of the 293 ships originally planned, 206 were canceled in 1944 and a further four after being laid down; three were not completed until after the end of World War II....The most notable ship of this class was Samuel B. Roberts, which gained fame during the Battle of Leyte Gulf, where it, along with several other ships engaged a number of cruisers and battleships of the Imperial Japanese Navy in a torpedo attack, where it was sunk after taking several hits.[2] During this action, Samuel B. Roberts achieved a speed of 28.7 kn (33.0 mph; 53.2 km/h) for over an hour by running her engines at 660 psi (46 bar).[3]"
